Sterlinggirl: You've gotten some great advice regarding adjusting your numbers (or rather, NOT adjusting them), but I wanted to add something I think many newcomers might need to hear:
Your weight on the scale is NOT always directly correlated to the number of calories you ate the day before. This is likely why we sometimes see losses after our UDs and gains after even the best of DDs.
Just because you had a great loss after an UD of xxxx calories one time, does not make that your magic number. The loss on the scale could be due to something you ate or did 3 or 4 days prior. I would always look for a pattern of losses at xxxx number of calories before I decided that a certain number was really my magic number.
I would hate for someone new to get frustrated when they step on the scale after an awesome DD and see a bounce up and think, "what the heck am I doing wrong?" When the fact is, you're likely doing everything right.
I think both you and Gweebles are going to do great on JUDDD!! you'll get your numbers just right in no time and this will be a breeze!
You know the laws of dieting. All gains are water weight. All losses are of fat! --SoHappy

I also have the book and he does say many times not to force feed yourself. I believe when we find the right calorie numbers for our ndividual body we should stick to them and work the plan. This is NOT a quick weightloss program. I am ejoying the healthy foods and the slow weightloss. One pound per week is my goal. Years ago I lost 30 pounds in 6 weeks but I have no desire to crash diet in that manner this time around.
It took me over 2 months to reach the appetite suppressions phase and I have now reached the peace with food phase. In other words, I know I can have anything but I am choosing the veggies and lean meats more often than not.
I read part of Dr. J's book again last night since I felt the need to clarify some of the science behind the diet so I am off and running again today which is an UD. The longer I work this plan the less I desire cookies or cake although I still have my every other day GooGooCluster as my treat. Calories factored in of course.
